9lb 12oz caught at Great Springs by Mark Knight

The gales and heavy rain during the week meant that only the keenest members visited the lakes for one last attempt to catch a monster trout before the end of the season.

Two excellent fish were caught, both from Great Springs, weighing 7lb 2ozs and 9lb12ozs.

Members visited the lakes on 23 occasions and caught a total of 17 trout, 4 of which were over 2lbs. Twelve of the fish were from Little Bognor and they were all returned to the lakes to overwinter.

The provisional total of trout caught from the lakes this season is 1004.

There will be regular updates to the website during the winter to keep members informed about maintenance work, the AGM, news and preparations for the new season.
